Sporting Alfas put in another telling performance to see off the threat of Madrid in the latest Costa League 1 game at the Woodbridge Oval. Alfas batted first and were given the perfect start by both openers who put on over 100 for the first wicket. This was followed by an outstanding batting performance by the in form Pennick and late cameos by Laundon and Lupson saw Alfas mount a total of 273 for 6.
Madrid`s reply stuttered after a bright start by Ashraf and Cooper. Brilliant one handed catches by Laundon and Crompton set the standard for an excellent fielding performance by the home side and the league leaders had a match winner in the shape of Wasim, who took 6 for 26 in an excellent spell of left arm spin.
Next week Alfas host the Cricket España Chairman`s XI in a game that promises to be a stern test for the Albir based club.
